What role does nostalgia play in our tastes as film fans? During my October 2010 quest to visit and revisit some lesser known Japanese monster movies from days gone by I have had many occasions to jump into the deep end of nostalgia and drift away to the land of the daikaiju beasts. It is a place that formed my whole opinion of horror movies until I was about 9 years old. I learned to love, trust and identify with these monsters.
